Storytime 48

Today’s photo was taken during the New York trip, and was chosen to reflect the holiday yesterday – can you relate? There are at least five different insects working this hibiscus bloom over, though some of them may only be in it for the nectar. The Japanese beetles (Popillia japonica) at top are most […]

A recent few

I’m trying to get back into shooting a little more regularly, not at all helped by not seeing much to shoot, not having a lot of free time that isn’t taken up with projects, and now not having the best weather. And yet, despite those overwhelming difficulties, I can still come through in the […]

October’s abstract and Monday color

A twofer today, in more ways than one. While looking through the image folders to see what was going to qualify, I couldn’t fully decide, so I settled for two to feature for October.

Actually, I lie – I settled for three. But the other will come later, partially in recognition of this momentous […]

Defying the rain

The nice thing about going long periods without rain is that scheduling photo outings isn’t difficult – provided you can cope with the heat. The recent rains have changed this quite a bit, and I’ve had to switch several student appointments around due to cruddy weather. This past Saturday, we watched the weather reports […]

Monday color 29

Today’s Monday color was shot exactly one year ago – tomorrow. I say this now so you have time to find a gift.

I almost used this for a previous Monday color, because that week was when I introduced the page of editing tricks that features the same image (meaning this is not its […]

Now, the intention was that this would introduce a new webpage I’ve been working on. But my time this week has been scattered, and so the page isn’t ready yet. Thus, this serves as a teaser instead, a hint of things to […]

Monday color 5

These hibiscus flowers were photographed during the trip to Sylvan Heights Bird Park that I talk about here, and were part of the selection of images that I’d prepared for that post – which probably should’ve taken place in August, but didn’t. When the end of the year was rolling around, I pulled this […]

Happy Halloween

The weather has been spastic as all git-out, and I’ve actually postponed meetings with a couple of students because it’s been raining frequently and unpredictably, despite many meteorologist’s claims otherwise. Yesterday as the weather cleared I got out to a park that I don’t visit too often, having left early to beat the rush […]
